The Democratic legislative conven tion of the Forty-fifth district was held in this city this afternoon, and was one of the most harmonious conventions ever held in the district. Ole K. Lar son, of Fosston, was unanimously nom inated for the legislature, and will un doubtedly be elected, as lie is one of the most popular and intelligent Scan dinavians in this section- of the coun try. To-night, after the convention, Bon. Chaki.es d'Autuemont Mill D. B. Johnson spoke to an immense crowd at the opera house. Mr. d'Autremoxt's speech was confined solely to tariff, and his arguments were well presented and convincing. Mr. Johnson discussed principally state politics, and showed Mr. I_E_____'B tioodle record in the most approved style. The speeches were most enthu- Siasticnlly received, and the good seed sown will bring forth much fruit. As A matter of frozen fact, Mr. Mer riam is a gone community. The fires of tariff reform are burn ing brightly all over Minnesota. They think seriously of inviting Old Hutch to go East and tackle the trusts. Mr. Bunnell should begin at once to brace himself for inevitable defeat. The ameer of Afghanistan is not dead, as reported he is only dyeing— hair. A man was killed the other day while looking for work— comment is unneces sary. The freshman class at Harvard col lege tins year numbers over 300 stu dents. The senate tariff bill does not attempt to weaken or destroy a single one of the trusts. The Mills bill makes its reductions solely in the interest of labor and in dustry. The Chicago car strike appears to be a case in which both sides are anxious to fight. If Canada should be annexed, the cashiers would have to go to the Sand wich Islands. It is said that Bon Ingersoll does not care a continental whether Harri -605 is elected or not One of the marked characteristics of speculation is its utter superiority to all forms of consistency. It took so long to incubate the senate bill that the country hardly expected it to turn out a deformity. , — ___. A thoughtful Philadelphia news paper advises linkers to raise the price of pie and lei bread alone. How did the Pioneer Press come to miss that important political item from Newark, N. .1., yesterday? The latitude of Michigan was not con genial, and Mr. Blame will leave the state as speedily as possible. The colored revolt from Mauone in Virginia is the breaking up of the solid Republican colored column. A xemuer of .royalist ladies in Paris have formed themselves into a society called the "Roses of France." The senate tariff bill increases the cost of woolens and cottons, the chief articles of universal necessity. According to Henry George the theory of "protection" is a supersti tion, and a relic of a barbarous ace at that. Blame's idea of pension legislation is that the president should approve every bill sent him, whether fraudulent or not. The heavy fog of last evening did not deter the Democrats of the Twin Cities from turning out and eating roast ox and listening to good speeches. Mr. Blame has been in no danger of sunstroke in the Northwest; on the con trary, be has found the atmosphere se vere and the temperature depressing. Adam Foreiwugii, having traveled all over the ; country and talked with men of all shades of political opinion, thinks Cleveland will be elected, and has put $18,000 on him. Miss Mii;fi:ke, the uovclist(CiiAßLES Egrert Craddock), is living with her parents in a St. Louis hotel. She is very lame, has a pale, sweet face, reddish hair, and is shy and modest. Mil Di xxell will find, long before the campaign closes, that Congressman Wilson is always loaded. The sturdy representative of the First Minnesota gives the "sand haul" statesman three or four nuts to crack in another column. Mr. Blame tackled trusts again yes terday. He thought them "private affairs" a short time aero. Now he states, with brazen effrontery, that they are "Democratic affairs." Mr. Blame is plainly talking for so much a speech, and intends to defeat his party before he is sent home. '■- '- _» ; v? THE ALLEGED REFORMERS. The Globe, which has ever fought the battle of the people with earnest sincerity, and, while exposing frauds and public and political evils, sturdily supported all movements- looking to re form, is surprised that the so-called In dependent Reform Democracy of Ramsey county should have so far forgotten it self as to permit itself to be led by the nose, and that, too, by Republican office, seeaers. In its report fit the pro ceedings of the reform rrw ' ; >- tan. the Pioneer.Press has the following: The Republicans were on hand to eurour age the movement M. J. Bell, Capt.' Ed Bean, rapt He nut: it, the three busy B>. and other Republican nominees were iv consul tation with various delegates, urging them by all means to nominate a ticket entire and thus perpetuate the split. The charming simplicity wilh which the Pioneer Press states that Republi can aspirants for office were present at a so-called Democratic convention, for the purpose of manipulating It. is a not able departure from the usual methods of the organ which is dedicated to the cause of the monopolists. Just how re form can come out of a convention which, the Pioneer Press states, took its inspiration from three Republican wire pullers, is not quite plain. When the Democracy of Ramsey county is com pelled to seek advice as to how to man age its affairs from Republican candi dates for office, it will indeed be in dire distress, and evidently in sore need of reformation. The gentleman who so recently suc ceeded to the managing editorship of the Pioneer Press is to be congratulated upon having given to the public such a frank statement of the methods of Re publican candidates. This is the sec ond time within two days that the Pio neer Press has given evidence of news paper reform; and while it may not be pleasing to the party it represents, it re flects credit upon the new managing editor, in that he will not allow his hon esty of purpose to be warped by the rank partisanship which has heretofore characterized every utterance of the Pioneer Press. REPUBIiICATDCPLICITY. The Republican party is resorting to attempts at salvation that would bring the blush of shame to the cheek of a Hottentot. Finding that its cr.y of "free trade" was being laughed out of court, it has turned its efforts to the saloon keepers and the prohibitionists at the same moment. Two circulars have been issued, one for the dealers in beverages and the other for their arch enemies, and these are being circulated from the general headquarters in New York, from those in St. Paul and Minneapolis, and from .several hundred other cities. To the prohibitionists the Republican party is a •'temperance party," and to the saloonkeepers "a liquor parly"— that is, the Republican is anything for votes. Here is a quotation from one of the documents sent to liquor dealers and a large number of German citizens: The t.erman voters in each slate must ally themselves with that party which is the least infected with this temperance contagion, and. so far as national politics are concerned, that party is the Republican. Having thrown out this bid for the suffrages of the Germans, the campaign double-dealer pens this little circular to the temperance people: Gen. Harrison Is an active Christian and life-long total abstainer, and an outspoken opponent of the liquor power, whose nomi nation was opposed on the ground that it would insure the hostility of the entire sa loon fraternity. The only states in which prohibition is maintained to-day are Repub lican states. Could political trickery be carried to greater lengths? The people, however, are warned in time to prevent the Re publican party from making converts through duplicity. These circulars will prove the Burchard of the campaign Of 1888. OUR FOREIGN' POLICY. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat claims that "the foreign policy of Mr. Cleve land's administration lias been dis graceful." The statement is not justi fied by the facts. Mr. Bayard's man agement of our foreign- affairs has been prudent, dignified and successful. In the case of naturalized American citi zens imprisoned in England the state department has contrasted brilliantly with previous administrations under Republican control. It acted promptly and with entire success in 1885 in sup pressing the insurrection on the Isth mus of Panama, which threatened the lives and properly of American citi zens in transit. War vessels were sent there, a force landed and order re stored. Ecuador was taught to respect the" rights of American citizens in the San tos case. Mexico was also influenced to make a radical rha nge in the law relat ing to aliens. Thanks to the just and firm policy of Mr. Bayard, perfect con fidence has been restored between the various independent governments of America and the United States— con dition which did not exist, owing to Mr. Blame's peculiar methods while pre mier of Garfield's cabinet. The pres ident has recently approved an act which directs him to invite these gov ernments to send representatives to par ticipate in an American congress to be held in Washington in 1880 to consider questions of common concern. Secretary Bayard's dignified rebuke of the Austrian government, for its re fusal to receive Mr. Keiley as Ameri can minister because he had married a Jewess, needs only to be mentioned to show the broad and independent spirit of his foreign policy. American mis sionaries have been protected in China, \ and American fishing rights have been vindicated by the seizure of British and Canadian vessels violating them. The president has demonstrated in his famous retaliation message that the con duct of foreign affairs by his adminis tration is able and efficient, and con spicuous for boldness and national self respect. Whatever of failure there has been in the conduct of foreign affairs by this administration has been entirely owing to the mischievously obstructive policy of the Republican senate. A SENSELESS CKY. The most faithful supporter of the Chicago platform must be getting fa tigued with the iteration of "British free trade." .Nobody who utters - that cry has undertaken to show what he means by it, or that it means anything at all. Most likely the feeling at the bottom it is that, free trade being a British invention for the benefit and be half of British manufacturers, and any relaxation of the tariff in any country be ing necessarily in the direction of freer trade, it must inure to the benefit of Great Britain and to the injury of the country that suffers the relaxation to be made. Of course there is a class of citi zens with whom "British" is itself an adjective of opprobrium, and who condemn anything to which it may be applied; and it is for their influence upon these peo ple that Republican organs print cuts of the British flag over Cleve land's picture, and tear passion to tat ters In denouncing a system of political economy which renders the main body of the people, and not a few favored in dividuals, the beneficiaries of the law. If Great Britain has grown rich and prosperous by free trade—and there is no denying that it is the greatest com THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: THURSDAY MORNING OCTOBER 11. 1883.— TE_T PAGES. mercial country on the globe— on what parity of reasoning is it argued that the I same policy will ruin America?- If lib eral trade is good for England, it can not- be especially injurious to- the United States. But no one wants free : trade. The Democratic party has never proposed it. The most that is con tended for, and which the Republicans : concede by the senate tariff bill, is less ; ened taxation upon articles of indis pensable necessity and an enlarged free list for raw materials. \ ■ _» BRIC-A-BRAC.

The duplicity of the managers of the Republican party canvass in this state and throughout the nation, is so out i rageous as to demand the severest re buke. In dealing with the prohibition j question these committees keep two classes of literature, one for the Prohi bitionists and one for the saloon keep ers and their friends. While our tem j perance and Christian people are being hoodwinked by Albert Griffin, "Bombs," setting forth that the Republican party jis the only temperance party, the j same committees, from the same rooms, i are Bending -documents in German, such as the St. Louis Tribune, a copy of which is now before me, which assures liquor dealers and their friends that the Repub lican party is not a temperance party, and that their interests are safer with that party than with the Democrats. j From documents sent to Germans and i liquor men I quote: "The moral of this ; is that the German voters in each state must ally themselves with that party | which is the least infected with this ! temperance contagion, and so far as na j tional polities is concerned, that party I is the Republican. It had the courage ; to declare in 1872: 'We oppose prohibi : tion,' and to this day has not retreated from this position." Again. "Harri son, as well as Morton, come from states in which the German influence has prevented all earnest prohibition efforts, and on this question they are above all doubts. If elected they will stick to their platform, which declares for personal liberty, and like Greeley, spit upon the empty temperance reso lution, which is not a part of the plat form." Or, "Nowhere have the Germans a better opportunity to become acquaint ed with the unreliability of the Demo i cratic party and prohibition than in Missouri, and in this state brewers and saloonkeepers are persecuted and op pressed to such an extent that frith one accord they have turned their backs upon the Democratic party and will ! vote the Republican ticket." 1 could fill a column or two of the G—OBE with these quotations. Now re member that this paper is sent out by the tens of thousands from the head i quarters of the Republican league in i Minneapolis and St. Paul, and also at national headquarters in New York. ; To Prohibitionists they send the follow ing: "Gen.- Harrison is an active Christian I and a life long total abstainer and an | outspoken opponent of the liquor power, I whose nomination was opposed on the ground that it would insure the hostility ' of the entire saloon fraternity. * * "Gen. Harrison is the nominee of a party that has always contained within its ranks a large majority of the ter n' perance men of the country and has Been growing increasingly hostile to the saloon every year." "The only states in which prohibition is maintained to-day are Republican states." "The Boutelle resolution commits the Republican party to active hostility to the saloon curse." . "Third party men may befog them selves, go off on tangents and side issues, put the cart before the horse, pose as martyrs or grow angry to their hearts' content, but after all. on . election day they will find themselves face to face with the fact, that to vote for Gen. Har rison is to vote for prohibition." "In fact it is clear that irresistable in fluences are encouraging, persuading and compelling the Republican party 10 become everywhere tbe avowed cham pion of the home and irreconcilable enemy of the saloon." _;•-.' The Republican party "sympathizes with morality" and then sends out a leaflet headed "OurCandidate'sViews," and from his reported speech at Dan ville, lnd., Nov. 26. ISB7, deliberately cuts out the following sentence: "I do not believe in. state prohibition," and then asks the "support of the temper ance and Christian men." Permit me to beg of temperance and Christian men not to be led to throw away their votes on such a hypocritical party. If you want prohibition vote for it with the Prohibition party. „_.V '.T-~t-t-i±'l. - W. W. Satteri.ee. ♦TIS EVER THUS.

Violent Collisions Between Police and Chicago Street Railway Strikers. Bonfires Built on the Tracks and All Traffic Com- *" pletely Blocked. M A Large Crop of Broken Heads Resulting From the Skirmishes. Further Troubles of a More Serious Nature Expected J to Occur To-Day. ''£ Special to the Globe. Chicago, Oct. 10.— There were a large number of collisions between the police and the crowds of people sur rounding the car barns and on the streets to-day, and the temper of the ; strikers and their sympathizers Is evi j dently becoming more irritable. All ! day long the tracks on the North side j were covered with obstructions, which i were renewed as quickly as removed, j and the policemen guarding the cars ! were forced every few yards to ! charge and disperse the crowds which gathered in front of the cars and as ! sailed the "scab" conductors and driv ers with all sorts of abuse. The first serious trouble on the North side oc curred during the fifth trip made by the Garfield avenue cars. They had pro ceeded as far as Indiana street without serious difficulty, when they encoun tered a crowd of perhaps 1,000 peo ple who had piled obstructions on the track. A gang of railroad laborers was set to work to clear away the debris, when a fusilade was com menced by the crowd. Rocks, clubs and missiles of every description fiew through the air, and when the police, after repeated charges, succeeded in dispersing the crowd it was found that three of the laborers were seriously in jured. They were: Mike Gibbons, cut on the scalp and seriously injured; August Anderson, stuuck with a oniric and face badly smashed; Nate Crime, struck in several places by flying bricks. They were removed to the hospital. More trouble was experienced at about the same spot at 5:30 o'clock. The crowd on the streets had been aug mented by persons returning from work, and at the hour named probably 5,000 people were packed in the block on Clark street between Illinois and Indiana. A number of Garfield avenue ears came on their down trip, but were stopped at this point where the disorderly element of the crowd was throwing obstructions on the tracks. Some bold sympathizers of the strikers got some cedar blocks from a neighboring streets, and piling them on the tracks poured tar on them. The mass was then set on fire. The police endeavored to disperse the crowd, but it was so dense that their efforts were unavailing, , and realizing that an attempt to force the cars through would probably result in a bloody outbreak, they were ordered to return to the barns. No further efforts were made after this to run cars on the North side. On the West side all was quiet until about 9 o'clock, although large crowds had gathered round the Western avenue barns. At that hour Messrs. Gubbins and Carson, two officials of the railway company, drove out of the barn in a buggy. Their appearance excited the wrath of the crowd and they were met by a shower of stones. Both men immediately drew revolvers and FIRED INTO Till". CROWD which became excited to the point of frenzy. The horse became frightened by the noise and started to run with the strikers in pursuit. The buggy dashed across Madison street, and Gubbins and Carson again fired into the crowd, which fell back and allowed them to escape. No one was hit by the flying bullets, but Gubbins and Carson were captured by the police at Oakley street and locked up. The most stubborn encounter of the day, however, occurred at 4 o'clock, when an attempt was made to run a car over the Madison street line. Five thousand persons were crowded around the barn at West ern avenue when the car was run out and they greeted its appearance with a yell. The crowd had been thoroughly exasperated by the shooting affray two hours previous, and it was evident that it meant business. The car had not proceeded ten feet before the cannon ade began. Stones and bricks rained upon the car fast and furious. Police Captain Aldrich, who was riding in his buggy alongside the car, was struck by a brick and had his scalp laid open. The driver of the car, a man named Huxter, was twice knocked from the platform by well-aimed missiles, while none of the policeman and reporters inside escaped without some bruises. Matters were getting critical, ('apt. Aldrich WA COVKBBD WITH BLOOD so was the driver of the car.* The mob was yelling wildly "Kill the scab," '•Shoot him," "Hang him," "Smash his face." Bricks and stones were flying thick and fast. The police appeared to be totally unequal to the crowd, and for a time there were reasons why the attempt to take the car down Madison street might have been prudently abandoned, but it was not. lighting their way. foot by foot, the police gradually made way against the crowd, which fell away by degrees as the car proceeded eastward, until by the time Oakley street was reached nothing harder than curses were being hurled at the vehicle and its occupants. The trip down town was accomplished with out interruption, but when Ashland av enue was leached on the return trip the trouble began again. The turbulent crowd, encountered when the car first started out, was again met, and the mob contested every inch of the ground. Lieut. Shea had to order a charge, and the police DID SOME MORE d.IBRING, Another charge had to be made at ■ Western avenue, and finally, clubbing' right and left, the officers succeeded in running the car into the barn. The railway officials wanted to run out an other car, but ('apt. Aldrich, in view of the coming darkness and the evident, bad tempei of the mob. decided that such an attempt would be unwise and the barns were locked up for the; night. A large crop of broken heads resulted from the trip, but it is not known that any were dangerously, hurt. A conference was held to-night; | between Mayor Roche and committees:; representing the North and West side; strikers, with a view to a settlement of the strike. At 9 o'clock the conference dissolved, but Mayor Roche declined to" say wnat had been done. The street car men said that they would report' f the result of the conference to the ' meetings of the strikers, who were ' waiting to hear from them, but declined to say anything for publication. A large number of extra police have been sworn in to-night and will be ais tributed to-morrow at points where the greatest trouble Is anticipated. A tele gram was received this evening at the North side strikers' headquarters from the men who came here to take the strikers' places, but returned to Phila delphia. Those who were formerly in the employ of the traction company there have been -. ••:- •, Vr... " ".•.. ..;.-■ : : REFUSED THEIR OLD POSITIONS, and the other Philadelphia employes of ! the Yerkes syndicate have taken the matter up. The traction company, the telegram states, has been notified that if the Chicago pilgrims are not taken back within twenty-four hours a general strike will ensue. It is also stated that this strike might extend to Rochester, Buffalo and Brooklyn, in all of which places the , syndicate \ has .". lines. It is '■ expected "•", that Gen. John M. Palmer - will .'be • greeted by an Immense audience at Battery D armory - to-morrow night, and, if the strike is still In progress, the outcome of the meeting will be awaited with un usual interest. The meeting is part of the general's political canvass as a can didate in the election for governor of Illinois, and was arranged a long time prior to the street car strike. Gen. Palmer has at all times and places during the canvass an nounced his opposition to the .employment of so-called private police l ■ agencies to perform public functions | j when a strike is pending. The imme diate wholesale . . - ' ", EMPLOYMENT OF PRIVATE POLICE by President Yerkes at the very begin ning of the strike, and their discharge by him when it was found that the mayor in this instance forbade their use on the. streets, has made the subject of i'Tinkertorosm" a peculiarly delicate one now for " an excited political meeting in Chicago. ' -It. is understood that Gen. Palmer's party managers expressed fear to-day that, discreet and adroit as they consider him, what he might say would be made to appear as inciting violence. Another matter dis cussed is the fact that the congregation of large bodies of men in times of pub lic disorder, is generally regarded as perilous in the extreme. The certainty of a gfeat crowd at the meeting empha sises this phaze of the situation, and the results are beintr watched for eagerly. Just before midnight President Yerkes entered the mayor's office, and a few moments later a committee of twenty one, representing all the strikers, ap | peared and were admitted. The com | mittee was armed with full power jto settle the strike. This authority had been conferred upon them by the general meeting of the strikers which went into session after the early conference with mayor was ended. It was thought at midnight in the best informed quarters that the strike would be at an end be fore daylight, the chief agent in bring in? it about being the threat of a gen eral strike on the syndicate's Hues In the cities ot the East. It was in the small hours when the conference adjourned. There had been no agreement, and the night's weary work was worse than fruit less. The report that President Yerkes had gone to the mayor's office at midnight proved erroneous. i Mayor Roche, before the midnight con ference, had spent several hours with Mr. Yerkes, at the Union League I club, presumably laboring to bring the magnate to a * compro ! misc. Mr. Yerkees, however, was utterly unbending. The best he | would do would be to reinstate the i West side men in a body if they would resume work immediately. This was j practically NO concession at ALL. What the nature of Mayor Roche's subsistent talk with the committee was at the past midnight meeting can perhaps be guessed from the griiin message that Luke Coyne, j president of the West side I car-men's association, sent to the hall i where the men were waiting, express ! ing news of a compromise. The mes- I sage was: "Tell the men to go home and I be at the barns in the morning, to see I that no cars go out." Chief of Police I Hubbard was asked what would be i done by the authorities. He said: "We shall meet force with force, and the cars will be run. The peace will be i maintained if it is necessary to bring out cannon." v. —•» Can't Tell the Truth. To the Editor of the Glove.

Shrewd Observers at the Na tional Capital Suggest Knute Nelson. The Scandinavian's Stock Is Quoted There at Par and Better. General Interest in the Can didacy of Wilson, Rice and Mac Donald. Senators Pass the Bill for the Relief of the Chippewa Indians. Special to the Globe. Washington, Oct. 10. -Interest in the talk of the presidential election is growing more and more intense in this city, where so many personal interests turn upon the result. Here, where the political information is centered, the utmost confidence is felt in the re-elec tion of President Cleveland. It is be lieved to be as certain as any future event can be that New York will cast its electoral vote for his re-election. Even prominent and well posted Re publicans now concede this much. The local divisions in the city of New York are certain to bring out an unusually large vote, and this will inevitably re sult in a handsome gain to the Demo cratic candidates for president and governor. In addition to this it is now well known that the Prohibition vote, which will be at the expense of the Republican party, will be very largely increased in the country districts of the state. New Jer sey is conceded to the Democrats. No one places it in the Republican col umn. Very many prominent and well posted Republicans who are in this city do not hesitate to say that in their opinion the electoral vote of Indiana will be cast for Cleveland. Indiana is naturally a Democratic state by at least 5,000 majority; and Harrison is notori ously unpopular in that state with both the laboring classes and the old Green back element. The real struggle now going on between the two great parties is for the United States senate. The Democrats will control the executive branch of the government, and will also hold the house. This much is reas onably certain. As to the senate, the Democrats fully expect to tie that body at the worst. But they are not satisfied with that, but will attempt to GO ONE STEP FURTHER. They are not without hope that they may be able to pica up at least one sen ator from some state which is now rec ognized as Republican. 1 vioiate no confidence In saying that the Democrats are casting a lustful eye upon more than one such state, among which is your own state of Minnesota. Ido not think that the managers expect to be able to elect a majority of Democratic members to your legislature, but they are not without nope of finding a Re publican who will be willing to do their bidding in return for their votes for this position. What is the matter with Knute Nelson? Is he not a Democrat on the main issue of tariff reform? Is it not understood and believed that he is, or soon will be, in the pay of your great Manitoba railway system? and what more likely than that that cor poration should desire, like many other powerful combinations of wealth, to have a representative upon the floor of the United States senate? It is be lieved here that Mr. Nelson's chances for occupying a seat in the upper branch of congress, by reason of his conservative position on the tariff ques tion, and his intimate relations with this greatjeorporation, are excellent. 'He stands better with the farmers than Donnelly, and as well with the corpora tions as Washburn, and would seem to be the connecting link between these two interests. This is the way it looks to the shrewd observers in the Capitol City. Much interest is manifested here in the congressional elections. Will Rice, Wilson and Mac Donald be re turned? They should be. There is not a stronger trio nor a more influential one in the house than the Democratic representatives from Minnesota. CHIPPEWA CIVILIZATION.

London, Oct. 10.— Conservatives are seriously considering the question of raising a fund to assist the Times in its case before the Parnell com mission and in defending the action brought against it by Mr. Parnell in the Scotch courts. The advocates of this plan base their course upon the ground that it would be eminently unfair toward the Times to permit that paper to bear any further share of the enormous costs to light what is really a party battle, and, this idea being impressed upon the minds of the moneyed Tories, it is expected that the contributions offered will greatly exceed the sum required. It fa suggested that at least £20,000 should be raised, and the action brought against the Times by Commoner Campbell, of South Fermanagh, will very much stimulate subscriptions. The Tories regard Mr. Campbell's action as proof that the Parhelhtea are weakening, and expect that when that gentleman is called before the commission he will refuse to testify, on the ground that what he might say would prejudice his individual case. There are increasing signs of an early meeting of the cabinet to consider pressing foreign business and arrange the preliminaries of the government's programme for the next session of parliament.
